Went here last night for my Husband 50th birthday. We had reservations for a party of 6 which included our 9 year old son, who can handle himself very responsibly in such restaurants but doesn't have a big appetite. I made the reservations through opentable.com. In the comments I mentioned that it was husbands birthday and if there was anything... More

Husband and I met our daughter and her fiance for dinner. Not sure if reservations are required but we used Open Table to secure a time. Initial thoughts upon entering were that this was a fine dining experience: white linens, wine glasses and plates waiting on each table. We were concerned we might be under-dressed in jeans with collared shirts... More

White table cloths , attentive servers and broad offerings of Italian dishes welcomed us to this mid afternoon lunch . We started with the mozzarella buffala caprese. We dine on the salmon entree and the seared ahi Tuna salad. The warm bread with Italian olive oil was an added bonus.

Personable staff serving delicious Italian food! Many favorites especially halibut. Pepperoni Pizza is the best and half price 4-6pm during the week along with half price house wine. Great minestrone soup!

The staff is great. The food was even better. If you are in the area for work, vacation, or just traveling through, I would definitely recommend stopping in. I have been going here for a couple years now and just now writing a review.

Since moving to Wixom in May, I came here 3-4 times, sat outside, with a bottle of wine and their peppers and sausage appetizer (which is tops). I decided tonight was time for complete dinner. Of course wine and sausage and peppers were a given to start. They boxed half of it for me to take with me, then brought... More

We went here with another couple for lunch and had a great time. The wine was wonderful, the special lunch menu was great, and our server was attentive and helpful. We had a few questions about menu items and she answered them all, going to someone else when she wasn't sure about something. Nice ambiance. We will definitely go back... More

Volare has a great menu with some different menu items. Wait staff was very attentive and a good wine list. We were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary and I am glad we chose Volare. We will be back again.

Excellent high end restaurant in Wixom. Although this is a small community don't be fooled this is a really great gem. If this place was in Birmingham it would get all the buzz. Very broad menu. High end cuts of meat the best I have seen on this side of Detroit. Lamb, steaks, delicate filets as well as excellent seafood.... More

Award-winning chef/owner Dino Grossi and his family opened Volare Ristorante in the Fall of 2004. Located in the heart of the new downtown Wixom city center, this restaurant features a dramatic interior rich in texture and color. The philosophy is simple: use the best ingredients as simply as possible and serve them with joy and passion. As a Tuscan cooks in Chianti, as a Neapolitan cooks on the Amalfi coast, as a Sicilian cooks in Palermo, at Volare we cook as an Italian might, in the truest sense. We import pasta, Parmigiano Reggiano, balsamic vinegar, sea salt and Prosciutto San Daniele because they are so distinct and virtually indispensable to the creation of a great Italian meal. We fervently believe in the inherent quality, freshness and greatness of our regions' ingredients, purchased from predominantly organic, farmers and friends. Our cheeses come from all over Italy. Our wine list is predominantly Italian, in celebration of the quality and diversity of Italian grape varietals and vinification. Volare Ristorante offers a memorable dining experience of impeccable Italian cuisine, and we have assembled a passionate team that possesses a combination of talent and experience. Volare is our interpretation of the best we have come to know in the Italian culture of family where it is best and most often celebrated, at the dinner table.
